the largest storm on the planet. about the sides of north carolina, south carolina and virginia combined. hard to miss it on radar. you see it on enhanced radar imagery, it's just off the coast of the carolinas. i can tell you the first impact on the united states is heavy surf. in terms of power ali was talking about moments ago, 145-mile-an-hour max sustained winds. gusts at 175. and this powerhouse is expected to roar its way to the north. where exactly is it going to go? according to the path of the hurricane center, the storm is expected to make a northerly jog over the next two days. by 2:00 in the morning on friday, should be just east of the outer banks. this thing say huge storm. so many people in the carolina coast dealing with heavy winds, of course, strong surf, tremendous waves. there will be millions without power before all said and done. as the storm is expected to move through, a category 3 storm. early saturday morning, a category 2 storm, perhaps, just off the coast cape cod with winds of 100 miles per hour. keep in mind these storms are very fickle and may jog out closer to
. this morning, obama holds a backyard chat in falls church, virginia, about health care reform so the president this morning is putting the spotlight on new benefits that kick in, as you said, tomorrow called the patient's bill of rights. the provisions include free immunizations for kids, no more lifetime health insurance coverage limits. no denial of coverage to kids with pre-existing conditions and young adults will be able to stay on their parents' plans until they turn 26. now, these are significant. but a reminder, most of the big pricey changes like requiring everyone to have insurance don't kick in until 2014. so some changes tomorrow but the rest down the road. >> all right. julie live for us in d.c. thanks very much for that update. >> poll showing most americans don't know what's in the health care bill. that's part of the problem. >> that's right. it will dribble out over the next couple of years. all right, we're starting to learn what is in bob woodward's brand new and as brian mentioned 16 books. 15 have been best sellers. that's it right there called "obama's war." essentially

in a very interesting place. at a hardware store in virginia, which probably carries a bunch of chinese tools. boehner's buddy house minority whip eric cantor he launched a preemptive strike on the democrats in an op-ed in today's "the wall street journal" and he writes "the progressive left end game is very simple. this comes -- first comes the provocative class warfare rhetoric. second comes the vast assumption of government control over the economy. third comes the growth of government spending and entitlements, and higher taxes on our nation's job creators and workers." you know what, i've got to give the guy credit, he knows what the playbook says. kantor is grabbing at straws. crying about class warfare, my friends, is one of the oldest arguments in the book. the republicans and the top 2% have been economically carpet bombing the middle class in this country for the last 30 years. but they belly ache about class warfare anytime their tax cuts are in jeopardy. hold it right there. i thought we were concerned about the budget. i thought we were concerned about the fiscal responsibi
virginia. we picked virginia to sort of look at how the president is doing two years later because he won that state, first democrat to do that since 1964 back in 2008. and yet we found republicans and then democrats, independents, who voted for the president in 2008 saying this is not moving, turning around quickly enough. and one of the people we spoke to is reverend -- pastor mariner. and he said a lot of his parishioners, including african-americans who were proud to support the president in 2008 are saying what happened? >> people don't seem excited about voting. they don't seem energetic. what difference would it make? we've got the first african-american president in office, but look at where we are now. >> what do you tell them when they seem disappointed? they had a lot of hope, but now they're disappointed. >> i don't know if they're disappointed at him, disappointed in the process. i think they're disappointed in overall this functional attitude in congress. >> and that's an important point to make. i heard that from other voters, as well. even some republicans say they voted f
